Customers who want to show support for religious freedom have been ringing up sales at the “Sweet Cakes” bakery in Gresham where owner Aaron Klein refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex couple.
Klein told KGW he’s sticking by his decision despite the complaint by a lesbian couple to the state that could bring him a $50,000 fine.
Labor and Industries Commissioner Brad Avakian says people who open their store to the public can’t discriminate when customers come in to buy their goods.
The lesbian couple released a statement Tuesday saying they’re humbled by all the support they have received. They have received offers for a free cake and free wedding.
